Laura's comment about owners willing to show, yes of course we are, because we're so happy with our units and want to show others, especially those considering a sticky, how great Fiberglas trailers are. Plus there always is that great reward called a referral, we just received another referral cheque this week, helped pay for a new battery I just picked up.

Hi Steve
If you are after a 19 we ordered one and hatch date was May 17 2016. We just got notice that our hatch date has moved up one month. We cannot take possession then, it has to be May 2016 (or Sept 2015- but I don't think that's in the cards). So you can have our April hatch date.

I drink scotch-single malt will do

Congratulations on taking the plunge.
Looks like I'm buying if we meet up. In February maybe Hot Toddy will be best.
Now for the build sheet!

Congratulations on the 17, Steve R!...JohnD too! Now the fun begins... thinking on all the ways to make the trailer your own! Lots of info here on the forum to help figure out what you want. One of the (MY) favorite threads is "It's Friday", where members post pictures received from ETI on the progression of their build. So exciting to see what people have done!

Our 04 Trillium had the neoprene liner (not really very neatly done) the liner in Scamp looks about the same ( just much tidier work ) - wonder if it is the same product ? We are happy with liner in our Escape but also liked the neoprene liner in the Trillium it was just poorly done with oh so many glue smears . The Escape work is pretty much perfect !

Pete has since passed away, but I like the term rat fur because it always reminds me of Pete and how much he contributed to the forum.

As is said, now you know the rest of the story...
Donna, just realized it's been 5 years since Pete's passing ! How I miss his profound wisdom and personality. He taught me a lot when I first joined the forum.

Often while in our Scamp and see the wall and ceiling covering. I think of Pete.

Did you ever read the thread between Pete and Gina D., about the Dust Ruffles? Those TWO! My eyes would leak.

Reading the thread here about putting the vertical vinyl strips inside the refrigerator to keep the cold in... Pete would be proud. He did that years ago and said it really, really worked.
